: Breastmilk for treating pinkeye?
My baby has had pinkeye for over a week. I tried putting breastmilk in her eye 2 days ago, since I'd read that some mothers use it to treat conjunctivitis. Anyone have success with this? Any tips? I've put in a call to the pediatrician since it's a bit worse this morning. I waited this long because I thought it would resolve on its own. I took a picture (it's not a pretty sight).
She doesn't seem bothered by it but I don't want to drag this out, if breastmilk won't be effective.
